Still receiving "class, interface, or enum expected" error

Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Introductions.java:1: error: class, interface, or enum
bimport java.io.Console;
1 error

Everytime I use java compiler, I receive this error. No idea how to fix.

Can you post your code?

I was able to recreate the error by changing import to bimport in Introductions.java. If you have bimport change it back to import.

when compiling a java file do the following: javac Introductions.java this will compile the Introductions file and create a Introductions.class file

then while inside the terminal do a command: ls The current files in the directory will be Introductions.java Introductions.class

To run the java file> java Introductions
